In Topic: England hookers - four into two spots?

Today, 07:19 PM

I'm going to have to take a close look at this guy (I have the Cowboys game from Monday to on Sky Plus to make a start).

It's a hell of a call to say a 26 year old with just 28 NRL games under his belt is better than James Roby.

Last year Clark was apparently better than Roby according to the meeja and various keyboard warriors.  Nobody is saying that now of course because on each occasion that the two have played against each other Roby has outshone him.  That doesn't mean that Clark wont one day be as good as or even better than Roby.  He may well be.  But he isn't at the moment.  Micky Mack will never been as good as Roby.

 

I've seen the Cowboys play as I have Premier Sports and I disagree. Granville isn't as good as Roby.  Some people simply have a problem with acknowledging just how good Roby is.

Too soon for Percy I think but he could be a contender for the world cup.

Agree with this but the continual default of the A team is a worry. Was at Chargers last week and they were warming up awaiting 

an opposition that did not show. 

That happens in the north too.  It's not unique to southern clubs, semi-pro or amateur.  Saints' under 19s were left waiting for Bradford's under 19s last season.  They claimed they'd gotten the wrong day.

Pity it finishes with shaun wane but hey-ho, can't have everything! :D


In Topic: Have we just made it simple for the top 4/5 clubs to dominate?

All clubs probably work hard, but they all didn't have the advantages Saints had coming into Superleague and receiving the top money that underpinned your advantages at the time.

 

Getting McManus was another boost as well SKY money. 

We've had the Superleague for 20 years now so really that's no excuse.  And there are Championship and League 1 teams working hard within their communities to build interest in the game, in far more challenging areas than anywhere in the north that has a Superleague team playing within it at present.
